Hi, (again using build 7041)
I'm sending this out for people used to using Maven, and Maven within IDEA, for feedback and suggestions. I myself am pretty new to Maven. I'm wondering how people are integrating the new Maven functionality vis-a-vis multi-module projects. I am on a project with a large existing codebase which has been converted over to use Maven 2. The codebase is divided into different modules, some of which have sub-modules. There is no master POM listing all sub-modules. Usually different parts of the team will specialize/focus on one module or another; you could imagine something like rich-client, backend and reporting modules (just so we have something to talk about).
My role crosses module boundaries so I'd like to have these in the same IDEA project, but would like to take advantage of the Maven 2 integration. While I can import a POM as a project, I can't import a POM as a project module--so I'm thinking maybe I should import each module POM into its own project, then create a top-level project and import each of those IMLs. I have no idea if IDEA, in that case, will be able to manage the multiple POM files included, or if that's even the way to approach this.
